Happy Thanksgiving! I tested the Soothe Step #2 this week for its wound healing peptide effect. I have been posting on what a peptide is and how they work. I have suffered from cold sores my whole life. Ouch, they hurt and look horrific. I get cold sores with certain triggers, like stress, and if I eat peanuts and chocolate. Well, I got a giant cold sore this week. As soon as I felt it coming on, I started applying Rodan+Fields Soothe Step 2. It not only helped with the pain and stinging, it is also the fastest I have ever seen the skin swelling, redness, and raw feeling subside. Thus far I have not experienced the intense itching that occurs with the healing process. I am going to keep applying until completely healed. Everyone should have a Step # 2 Soothe in their medicine cabinet! I am impressed on a personal level!!!
Peptides have been the focus of the last several posts. Again, peptides found in skin products help heal the skin and lessen fine lines and wrinkles. The molecules are smart little chains of amino acids that help drive chemical reactions in the skin. A featured product that contains anti-inflammatory peptides is the Rodan+Fields Soothe Step 2 product, which contains a patented RFp3 technology. Used with the cleanser step 1 and the moisturizer Step 3, the product works by neutralizing skin irritants, and pacifying red irritated skin tissue. One of the peptides is called oligopeptide, and it reduces bacteria. The tetrapeptide in Soothe Step 2 reduces the appearance of irritation. It also contains peptides which shield against collagen damaging enzymes, thus keeping the skin soft and full instead of saggy and wrinkled. This product is used in conditions like Rosacea, Eczema,Psoriasis, Chapped skin, any irritated stinging skin conditions with amazing prompt relief of acute symptoms of stinging. With continued use, the red appearance subsides. Thank you amazing peptides in Soothe! Here's to better skin, Dr. Younger You!
Peptides have been studied in the treatment of various skin conditions, including acne, rosacea, and aging skin changes such as wrinkles, fine lines, and brown spots. Peptide molecules in skin products have been found to be safe and effective. Peptides have shown beneficial bioactivity with demonstrable effects. In layman's terms, studies prove that peptides(when properly formulated) can get into the cell intact and in its active form to have an effect on the cell, i.e. you are not applying the "miracle potion" of the week or Grandma's skin cream with no proven results. Peptides have NOT been found to have negative consequences such as cytotoxicity, irritation, immunogenicity, or mutagenicity. Layman's speak: peptides are NOT causing microscopic bad changes on a cellular level, like irritation or cancer causing effects. You must be aware if what you are buying and putting on your skin meets these criteria, otherwise you may be throwing your money away. If a company cannot show you their independent research, they likely do not have it. Rodan + Fields products undergo research and clinical testing to make sure you are getting what you paid for, a product that works! Not only do they do the research, they have third party independent dermatologist do the studies on the real-life outcomes of patients who used the product, and publish those results for each regimen they formulate. Also, Rodan + Fields products ensure their products are formulated in such a way as to have the working molecules remain intact and compatible with the other components in the product to be delivered effectively into the skin.

Here's to a Younger You,
Dr. Younger You!
Not only does the aging skin have a decrease in collagen production, but there is increased protein break down resulting in collagen dehydration, Hence, wrinkles and sagging cheeks as we age. Peptides that are modeled in skin care products enhance skin rejuvenation. These same methods are used in wound healing treatments, Basically, with the correctly formulated product, we can "heal" our skin. Stanford University trained and current Professors Dermatologists Rodan and Fields have participated in the research,written peer reviewed studies, and have their own line of anti-aging products. The products work because the scientific research proves it. More info to come! Stay tuned!
